Connected World Magazine 2014 Connected Car of the Year Winners Announced

Outstanding onboard connectivity carried the day for the winners of this year’s Connected World magazine Connected Car of the Year award winners. The awards were presented on stage at the Connected World Conference Pavilion, located within the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, on Feb. 6, 2014.

The winning vehicles, chosen by the editorial team at Connected World magazine, will appear in the Feb/Mar issue of the magazine. The awards were presented by Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Connected World magazine.

The Connected Car of the Year awards vehicles at all price levels, ranging from the small to ultra-luxury, all with the idea of honoring the best-in-class that fit all driver’s budgets and demonstrate the right blend of technology.

“We are pleased to recognize the best that in-vehicle technology has to offer in infotainment, convenience, safety, and green technologies. As the industry continues to improve through technology the real beneficiaries will be all the buyers of automobiles,” says Smedley.

Connected World magazine’s Connected Car of the Year winners are determined by selecting vehicles that combine the right mix of safety, convenience, and infotainment technology. Automobiles are evaluated in six different categories: small, midsize, luxury, ultra-luxury, green, and truck.

  • Small: Dodge Dart (Uconnect)
  • Midsize: Infiniti Q50 (Infiniti InTouch)
  • Luxury: BMW 5 Series (ConnectedDrive)
  • Ultra-luxury: Mercedes-Benz S-Class (mbrace2)
  • Green: Tesla Motors Model S
  • Truck: Ford Motor Co. F-150 (SYNC)
